David responded to a work request on Thumbtack placed Sunday afternoon and came it that evening itself. Our broken kitchen faucet was back in working condition. We re-hired him again to install a new faucet which needed to be done in the first place anyway. Definitely recommend David to anyone looking to get work done.

I originally hired Cruz to put up a fence. However, I quickly realized he was skilled at other areas including painting and home improvement/repair. He did an excellent job putting up my fence, painting it, as well as fixing a few things inside my house in the kitchen and living room. He was extremely professional and his work quality was great. Would definitely hire him again if I need any help with home improvement. Highly recommended for any and all home repair, fencing, and painting!

I had let my home go way too long and as such became embarrassed about having anybody come in and clean. When I put out feelers for a housecleaner Michael was the first to respond and even after sending him photos of what my home had become he still consented to clean, all the while assuring me that it will be okay and that I'm not the only person to get myself in the situation I had fallen into. As you can see from the my bathroom and kitchen photos Michael has posted it was quite a huge job. He spent one hole day in the bathroom scrubbing and scraping the tiles cleaning the sink, tub and bowl and washing the windows and mirrors (You can see how my bathroom shines in the after photo). Than he came back for another 1/4 day to attack the kitchen ( you can see the results as well). I recommend Michael very highly for his devotion to the job, understanding of your needs and excellent quality of his work.

We were really pleased with the work Matt did. We had a handful of projects that he completed for us: -Painting and installing trim and a dowel in our laundry -Adding reinforcements, a bike hook and shelving to a storage unit -Hanging floating kitchen shelves He has a great attention to detail when it comes to things like tight seams, clean edges and making things level. He was also on time, friendly, polite and cleaned up after himself. I will note that while we did pay the amount he initially quoted us, it worked out to more than his listed rate of $50/hr, but still seemed reasonable for the job. We'd be happy to use Matt again for future projects!

I needed some paint and other hauling. I decided at the same time I would get a new kitchen faucet installed. Every aspect was flawless and pleasant. Good communication, fast response, first rate work, and a fraction of the price of others. I will use for my other handyman needs.

My wife and I would give them 6 stars if I could. Gustavo and his team did an awesome job building a new fence for us. It was a somewhat complex job involving two different architectural designs (one across the front of the property and one down the side) plus installing a new iron driveway gate. My wife and I watched in amazement as they worked carefully, taking the time to get everything just right. They did a really terrific job for us and we would recommend them highly. Please feel free to contact us as a reference anytime. Thanks so much to Gustavo and his great team.

I had two other designers over to help select the right wall color for bedrooms that have two different colored burl veneer furniture that I designed and had made. I've been performing house and furniture design for over thirty-five years and no one, including myself, had a clue as to the perfect room color. Rachel hit the colors right on the mark for the perfect contrast. The rooms are exquisite. Rachel has an amazing talent for knowing what works. I have referred her to my friends who also think she is impressively talented.

We hired Sam from life time remodeling with his crew to do a complete kitchen remodel. In the meeting Sam recommended a kitchen design that we like a lot. And it turned out to be fantastic just like I wanted. Between my job and this job he made the entire process very easy and seamless for us. I decided to have the remodel done while I was part time traveling overseas. A friend of mine told me we were crazy to have the job going when we were not there to check on it, but because they have a app that I can see all the time updates from process of the job i decided that it is fine and I went. the app they use is very easy to use it fits a construction company in Silicon Valley, that is one of the reasons why I am so impressed with this company :). Turners out, it worked out great Sam's crew did the job and moving along he sent me pictures from the job site to make sure I'm fully informed in all the details I returned to an almost-finished kitchen. The quality of the work and attention to detail was excellent. The team was conscientious about confirming the details with us before each portion of the job, making sure that each decision was agreed with me and were clearly careful in their work. Sam's crew was friendly and pleasant to have in my home with the kids. I decided the last minute to paint the entire interior house during the project, and asked Sam if he could book movers as i was overseas. Rather than hire movers Sam's crew packed up our entire house themselves, moved it to the garage, then moved it back just in time for my return!!! I thought for sure something would get broken but everything made it back upstairs in perfect condition. They even set out my son's toys for him to find when we got home which was much appreciated by a jet lagged preschooler. It was a small thing but showed the care and respect the crew has for their clients. I'm very pleased with the resolute on the paint and kitchen. I would not hesitate to use Sam or anyone from his company life time remodeling again or to recommend them to anyone :).

We hired MJH Construction Management to complete renovations of our recently purchased home. With a wealth of knowledge and experience, MJH determined the best solutions to a number of complex repairs and additions including floor leveling, heating, plumbing and electric. MJH helped us choose several improvements like changing the floor plan for better use of space, installing a gas fireplace as well as a bathroom and kitchen upgrade. MJH oversaw the contractors to ensure the work was completed and billed correctly. Throughout the process MJH kept us apprised of the costs and schedule - there were no surprises. We are delighted with the results - our renovated house came out fantastic.

Angela doesn’t just deliver incredible interiors - she delivers complete peace of mind for even the pickiest of do-it-yourself decorators. Stop agonizing over your home and instead, turn it over into the hands of an exceptionally creative, responsive and budget conscious partner. We worked with Angela for a total refresh of our four-bedroom home and could not be more thrilled with the process and the results. Snag her before the secret is out!

David is a caring and enthusiastic man and a delight to work with. He is very efficient and gets the job done quickly. I am grateful to him because, although I am an interior designer and certified color consultant, I do not have expertise in drawing to scale sketches of the spaces I'm hired to design. David helped me by doing those sketches and my clients were impressed. I gave him 4 stars only because some of the sketches needed to be redone because of miscommunication between us. I must admit though that I may have not been thoroughly clear re. measurements. David was always eager to do the best job possible, and I appreciated that immensely. Thank you David. Would hire again.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What do interior designers do?

Interior designers do much more than pick complementary paint colors and choose matching furniture — although those tasks are important parts of the job. Unlike decorators, interior designers usually have an associate of science degree or certificate of achievement in interior design from an accredited program. They’re trained in drafting, lighting and computer aided design (CAD), and are experts in room-specific design and residential space planning. Interior designers use these skills to plan and design safe, highly functional and beautiful interior spaces, from kitchens and bathrooms to family rooms and bedrooms. They determine space requirements, work within building codes and inspection regulations, and meet accessibility standards. An interior designer’s day-to-day job includes creative and technical tasks, both of which often require great communication skills:

  • Creating model rooms and visuals using design software.
  • Researching different textiles, materials, finishes, lighting and furniture.
  • Hiring suppliers, vendors, and contractors.
  • Estimating costs and making bids on potential jobs.

How do you find a good interior designer?

For many homeowners, the difference between a good interior designer and a bad one is simply a matter of taste — but all good designers have similar skill sets. Interior designers usually have a degree or certificate in interior design, with training in design principles and lighting, drafting, and computer aided design (CAD) software. Good interior designers have strong color balancing skills and understand how different colors influence spatial perception and moods. They know the building and electrical codes in the areas where they practice, and they make sure that any contractors they hire also work to those codes. They are knowledgeable about different upholstery fabrics and draperies, stay ahead of residential design trends, and maintain their own individual creativity. Also, good interior designers have excellent space designing skills, so they can arrange a space efficiently and with ideal traffic flow. Ultimately, hiring a good interior designer means pinpointing one whose signature style is complementary to your personal style — so checking out many designers’ portfolios is a must — and whose communication methods match yours.

How do you choose an interior designer?

Choosing an interior designer is all about finding one whose signature style fits well with your tastes and who can work within your budget. To choose the right professional for your interior design project, ask yourself these five questions:

  • What is your signature style? Good interior designers can both describe their personal aesthetic and demonstrate their signature style through their portfolios. Make sure it appeals to you.
  • How will you make sure the design fits my lifestyle? Good designers understand that the interior design must improve a homeowner’s experience in their home and fit into their lifestyle; for example, a white suede sofa is a poor choice for a family with large dogs and small children.
  • How much do you charge? Depending on the project, an interior designer may charge an hourly rate, a flat fee or a percentage of the project’s total cost.
  • How will you stick to my budget? An interior designer should have a plan for staying within your budget, which includes full transparency of costs and flexibility when choosing materials and furnishings.  

Because an interior design project is highly collaborative and based on hard-to-define personal preferences, it’s most important to choose a designer who communicates clearly and listens closely to you.

How much do interior designers charge?

You can hire an interior design for a job as basic as a one-room consultation or as complex as supervising the design of an entire new home, helping with space planning, choosing color palettes, and shopping for furniture, flooring and artwork. The size and scope of the job will determine how much an interior designer charges; the average national cost for an interior designer ranges from $75 to $100 or more per hour. Other cost factors include the person’s reputation — interior designers to the stars are usually more expensive — and region. Most interior designers charge an average of $100-$225 for an initial consultation, but some will charge an hourly rate, usually starting at an average of $50, for larger projects that require extensive consultations. Hourly rates may be available for smaller projects, such as redecorating a living room or staging a home for sale; for instance, shopping and consulting can cost an average of $75 to $100 per hour, while staging costs and average $95 per hour. For many homeowners, a percentage of an interior designer’s cost is recouped through the professional discounts they receive from their vendors.
